Hi, I’m Sashank! I am a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University with Dr. Yael Niv, before which I did my PhD with Dr. Anne Churchland. I am passionate about developing computational models to tackle complex real-world problems. I enjoy cross-disciplinary collaborations, making music and lifelong learning.
In my current research, I study the algorithmic inductive biases that allow humans and animals to learn efficiently in challenging environments, and the ways in which they may turn maladaptive in certain psychiatric conditions.
